Boredom Can Kill You

Standard

I’ve always had this theory in mind that people who talk behind people’s backs destructively are unhappy, miserable, jealous, insecure people. They wanted to do things which they can’t and it frustrates them, hence, they resort to backbiting. Also, they are cowards as they aren’t brave enough to face their insecurities and confront their real enemies – who are themselves.

Or could it be just plain boredom? Being not busy; having lots of idle time on hand can make a person nosy. I’d rather mind my own business or find something productive when killing time. It’s better than sinning. God bless all miserable people. Glad am not one of them. 🙂

For Cherina Pt3

I have an idea, maybe one or two.
Better grab my pen and diary in blue.
Breathe, focus, don’t pout;
So i can start weaving words i wanna talk about.

Put ur feet on the reader’s shoes;
Will u be happy? Or just be confused?
Aim for simplicity and creativity;
Notwithstanding objectivity and clarity.

The tone must be set from the very start.
Be neutral and argue all important facts.
End with a good drama; conclusions set out.
I reckon that’s the way of writing smart.

School is cool as can be
once you learn the abc.
Keep your eye on the goal,
study well that is your role.

Homework, books, paper and pen
Are best friends in life until the end.
Because school doesn’t stop after you graduate;
Life itself is a continuous learning process.

Be friendly and wise,
Everything that’s nice
Be cautious and give attention
So u can avoid detention

happy thoughts will always be
Source of creativity at work, u’ll see
with this i end my little poem
School is fun just enjoy every moment

School is crazy
But if we’re going to take it seriously
Our life will be easy
And not dizzy

Remember the learnings
Don’t forget the fun
Each day is a new beginning
The sad ones remind us we’re human.

Friends and teachers alike
Play a great part in our lives
Without them, school is gloomy
Surely, education won’t be easy

So now focus on ur education
A pathway to success, a bridge for a better nation
If we all become civilized and educated citizens,
Surely, Philippines will be a better place to live in

I am sure narinig ninyo na ang mga katagang ito “utang na loob”. Madalas na eksena yan sa isang tipikal na pamilyang Pinoy. Sa English, pagiging grateful daw. Pero alam na alam naman naten na iba ang kahulugan sa atin niyan.

Nauutang nga ba ang kaloob-looban ng isang tao? Yun ba ang tinutukoy ng katagang “utang-na-loob”? Maibababik ku ba yung part ng kalooban na binigay or pinautang sa akin? Mababayaran ku ba eto? Gaano katagal? Hanggang kailan?

Ang sagot ay Hindi. Isa sa mga hindi magandang norms ng Pinoy. Norms are dictated by society but not really mandatory. Sa tagalog, “nakasanayan” baga.

Baket kamu panget? Kapag tumulong ka sa isang tao, inde ka dapat nage-expect ng kapalit bagkus ay buong puso ang iyong pagkalinga sa hangarin na mapabuti ang kapwa mu. The minute na gawin mu yun, walang obligasyon yung tinulungan mu to return the favor. Salamat kung oo. Salamat din naman kung hindi.

Kung grateful naman ang taong tinulungan mu, matatandaan nya yan. At dadating ang panahon, in his own little way maibabalik nia yung magandang nagawa mu sa kanya. Sa tamang panahon. Inde sa panahon na ididikta ng tumutulong kc pamimressure yun. At panunumbat na rin.

So, mabalik tayo sa tanong. Nauutang nga ba ang kalooban? The answer is No. Ang meron lang is maari tayong tumulong sa kapwa naten at our own disposal. If he returns the favor, it should be at his own freewill….not imposed…not napilitan.

Yan ang tinatawag na “undue influence” sa Law. Just because of certain relationships sometimes we are forced to do something which is against our will. Do not be like that. Do not let circumstances dictate you. To do or not to do is a question that you should ask yourself and no one else. Only at your freewill should you do things, be not dictated by “utang na loob”.

Tsaka, yan yata ang utang na pinakamahirap bayaran sa lahat. Kasi unang-una, walang due date yan. Pangalawa, walang exact amount Sometimes, kahit bayad ka na sa initial favor parang habambuhay yata yang utang na yan at mukhang mamanahin pa nga ng mga anak natin.

To sum up, help should be given at your disposal without obliging the other person to return the favor, unless otherwise agreed upon. And lastly, do not expect anything in return para walang pressure. Anyways, at the end of the day, alam naman ni God yan kung paano ka naging mabuting Kristiyano sa mga tinulungan mu. Sya na lang magrereturn ng favor. Mas malaking favor pa kung gusto mu. Everybody happy pa. It’s all mindsetting. 🙂
